Sirloin steak tips are an economical cut of beef that can be transformed into a five-star dish with a little attention and care. Sirloin steak tips often have a fair amount of intramuscular fat and do well when cooked to medium or medium-rare. Sous viding to 130°F and then finishing in a hot skillet or over a hot grill ensures the meat develops a tantalizing char on the outside while guaranteeing a perfectly cooked interior. Serve with your favorite sides. Looking for a BBQ sauce recipe? Our How-To Guide has three different types for any occasion.
